With spring around the corner it’s time to dust off all of your favorite toys. Whether you love tearing up the trails on an ATV, hitting the roads on your motorcycle or taking your jet ski out on the open water, it’s the perfect time to get out and get moving. Before you do though, let’s talk batteries. Lead acid, AGM or gel Powersport batteries are the traditional choices for powersport applications like motorcycles, ATVs, personal watercraft, snowmobiles and UTVs. Recently, however, Batteries Plus Bulbs began offering PowerSonic’s new Hyper Sport Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. The Hyper Sport Series uses a new type of cathode material that provides significant upgrades in terms of safety and performance.
Lithium Iron Phosphate technology is the safest type of lithium battery available in the PowerSport industry. They have excellent chemical and thermal stability, meaning that they stay cool in higher temperatures. This ability to remain cool prevents the battery from burning or exploding when overcharged or overheated. In addition, lithium iron phosphate is non-toxic, making it much easier to dispose of once its life cycle has ended. They are also compact and four times lighter than other Powersport models.
When it comes to performance, the Hyper Sport series offers a number of factors that distinguish it from the competition. For starters, each individual battery is outfitted with its own Battery Management System (BMS). The BMS is an electronic system that manages the battery by protecting it from operating outside its safe operating area. It does this by controlling important factors like voltage, temperature, state of charge, current and state of health. It also provides real-time communication between the battery and its host system, allowing you to monitor its status. This management system helps to maximize the battery’s performance and battery life. It also makes it safer.
Due to their high temperature tolerance, Lithium iron phosphate batteries also degrade much slower. This results in a life cycle that is four times longer than those of traditional Powersport batteries. In addition to this, they charge four times faster. Furthermore, they can be stored for long periods of time without losing their charge, making them the perfect fit for seasonal applications like motorcycles and jet skis.
Hyper Sport Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries offer a number of significant advantages over traditional Powersport varieties. With spring on the way, now’s the perfect to upgrade the battery in your ATV, motorcycle or personal watercraft.
